I like all kinds of potato too! (It's the Irish ancestry I guess)

Though most of my Irish family prefer the white "floury" potatoes - good for stews and mash.

Well sometimes we go out, but I've gotten to the point where I like my own cooking a lot better that what passes for restaurant food these days. I can cook a half-week worth of meals at home for the same cost of the dinner for two out. I do make exceptions for Broasted Chicken from the restaurant in the town next door. Carry-out, of course.

And I also have no life. Alas, I'm also slow as molasses so there was no pie tonight. Too bad too, since Himself said he could swear he smelled a pie baking while he was cutting part of the yard. He made himself feel better by saying someone might have been toasting an apple pop-tart.

I made another batch of chop suey tonight. I've got 3 2 serving containers. Plenty of meals for later. 2 containers for the freezer and 1 for the fridge.

Hope you feel better soon, Taxy!

Z, I first read that as "32 containers". And my first thought was "How MUCH does she like that???"

I thought she was just making a big batch for the freezer. I didn't even notice that it wasn't 32.

I am a fan of "Desiree" potatoes (which are red-skinned). But obviously there are many variations of potato in existence.

When you guys say "redskin" is that a particular variety, or a general term?
I don't think I've ever seen a name attached to the redskins found around here. Just redskin.
They are a creamier potato than russets or white potatoes and hold up better in cold potato salads.

Yay. Only two tries to upload the pic tonight
Reminds me of chicken a la king, which we may be having this weekend, as I just bought a whole chicken yesterday.

It's one of my favorite uses for leftover chicken, GG. It was just missing the peas.
